Title: How it works
File Attachment:
Attachment Type:

Since Williamsport Station has been changed into a portion of a circuit, by the last conference, and the society here have preaching only once every three weeks we fear that many are very much dissatisfied with the arrangement. The cry of preachers who have been sent here for a number of years past has been that they could not live on the salary they received,- hence the present arrangement. Yet a preacher with a wife and one or two children was allowed 750 to 850 dollars, and a house to live in. Now we think when a man with so small a family as that cannot live on the above salary, he cares for the fleece than the flock.
